Neurodiverse Couples Therapy: Navigating Unique Relationship Dynamics

Are you facing specific challenges that impact your relationship? As a certified Neurodiverse Couples Therapist, I’m here to help you navigate these unique dynamics and build a stronger, more understanding connection.

Understanding Neurodiversity in Relationships
Neurodiversity refers to the natural variation in human brain function and behavioral traits. When one or both partners are neurodivergent (e.g., autism spectrum disorder), it can lead to specific challenges, including:

  • Differences in communication styles and interpreting non-verbal cues
  • Sensory sensitivities affecting daily interactions and intimacy
  • Difficulties with emotional regulation and expressing emotions
  • Divergent interests, routines, or information processing styles

These issues can create misunderstandings, conflicts, and feelings of being misunderstood, straining the relationship.

A Tailored Approach to Neurodiverse Couples Therapy
In my practice, I help neurodiverse couples understand and appreciate their unique dynamics, developing strategies to strengthen their bond. My approach includes:

  • Exploring each partner’s communication needs and styles
  • Identifying sensory sensitivities and developing coping strategies
  • Teaching effective emotional regulation techniques
  • Fostering empathy, understanding, and compromise
  • Creating a shared language and framework for navigating differences

Through this tailored approach, couples build a foundation of mutual understanding, respect, and connection, thriving in their neurodiverse relationship.

The Benefits of Specialized Support
Neurodiverse couples benefit greatly from working with a therapist who understands their specific challenges. By seeking specialized support, you can:

  • Gain insight into how neurodiversity impacts your relationship
  • Learn practical tools and strategies to improve communication and intimacy
  • Feel validated and understood in a non-judgmental space
  • Develop a stronger, more resilient bond with your partner

Insurance Coverage
If either partner has a formal autism spectrum disorder (ASD) diagnosis, you may be eligible for partial reimbursement from your insurance provider. I can provide the necessary documentation to help you navigate this process.

The entire focus of my practice is working with couples. It is my passion and as such, I have sought out extensive training specifically focused on couples therapy and continue to do so. I carry a smaller caseload and offer the couples I work with more availability, accessibility, and flexibility than is typical with most therapy practices. As a result, the investment is $750 per 90-minute session. Please note that I do not accept insurance.
